Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics

Call Deadline: 30-Nov-2013

Meeting Description:

The conference aims to encourage discussion between linguists and school teachers to investigate how formal linguistics can be applied to the teaching of any natural language (modern languages, classical languages and dialects). The main purpose is to stimulate a profitable exchange between formal approaches to linguistic facts and the way in which they are usually dealt with in school practice. A further aim of the conference is to elaborate new teaching proposals on the basis of linguistic reflection.

Keynote Speakers:

Camilla Bettoni (Università di Verona)
Maria Giuseppa Lo Duca (Università degli Studi di Padova)
Nicoletta Penello (school teacher at IIS 'Tito Lucrezio Caro', Cittadella - PD)
Diego Pescarini (Università degli Studi di Padova)
Laura Vanelli (Università degli Studi di Padova)

Conference official languages are Italian and English.

Call for Papers:

We invite abstracts for presentation at the workshop 'Linguistica e Didattica' to be held at the Università degli Studi di Padova, Padua (Italy), 25-26 February 2014.

No theoretical framework will be favoured; anyway, proposals which are based on the concrete analyses of empirical data are particularly welcome.

Contact: linguistica.didatticagmail.com

The conference proceedings will be published as a special issue of the online journal 'Grammatica e Didattica,' whose previous issues are available at the following link:


We invite submission of abstracts for 20 minutes presentation and 10 minutes discussion. Abstracts must not exceed two pages, 12 point font size, including examples and references.

Submissions are limited to 1 individual and 1 joint abstract per author, or 2 joint abstracts per author. Abstracts should be in Italian or English.
